Are we at the mercy of our thoughts, or do we have control over them? How much can we effect our deeply held beliefs about what we are capable of? How can we make the most of our thoughts?
Ro and Lo are very familiar with the transformative effects of thoughts to create beliefs and convictions about ourselves. These beliefs determine what we attempt to accomplish in life, and whether we go into a task with fear or empowerment.
When Ro described the beautiful analogy of the mind as a garden, Lauren went to work creating a poem to bring the analogy to life:
One day, when Ro and Lo were swapping stories about how they viewed the role of the mind in performance, Ro came up with an analogy that they both fell in love with: the mind is a garden. Lo loved the concept so much that she went to work writing a poem that she could refer back to in her own life as a reminder when things got complicated and busy (like they always do). The poem is the essence of the floral designs on Believe I Am, and a great way to remind yourself to actively tend the garden of your mind. If it inspires you, hang this poem in a special place for daily inspiration!
